Maid hangs self in Ro­ma­nian cou­ple’s condo in Gur­gaon

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - TIMES CITY - Bag­ish.Jha@

Gur­gaon: A maid work­ing with a Ro­ma­nian cou­ple liv­ing in a con­do­minium on Golf Course Road com­mit­ted sui­cide by hang­ing her­self from a ceil­ing fan on Wed­nes­day. The maid, orig­i­nally from Kathmandu in Nepal, was work­ing with the Ro­ma­nian cou­ple since Oc­to­ber. No sui­cide note was found.

The de­ceased was iden­ti­fied as Kami (30) work­ing as a cleaner in the house. The Ro­ma­nian cou­ple are work­ing with MNCs with of­fices in Gur­gaon, one of whom is a CEO. At the ti- me of the mishap, the maid was alone in the flat.

Po­lice said that in the af­ter­noon, Kami called up her hus­band, who lives in Nepal with their son. Soon af­ter that, she al­legedly com­mit­ted sui­cide by hang­ing her­self from the ceil­ing fan with her ‘du­patta’. Her body was dis­cov­ered later by the em­ployer cou­ple’s driver.

Po­lice said Kami was al­legedly de­pressed for some time due to her son’s poor health. The son is sup­posed to un­dergo throat surgery. They had lost ev­ery­thing in the Nepal earth­quake of April 2015, and were strug­gling to make ends meet, de­spite both hus­band and wife tak­ing jobs. “On Wed­nes­day they got news about fresh medical com­pli­ca­tion of her son, wors­en­ing her de­pres­sion” said a po­lice of­fi­cer.

Kami’s ma­ter­nal aunt, who lives in Delhi, filed a com­plaint un­der Sec­tion 174 (po­lice to en­quire and re­port on sui­cide) of CrPC. “We’re in­ves­ti­gat­ing the case,” said a po­lice of­fi­cer.

The Ro­ma­nian cou­ple were not avail­able for com­ment, and the so­ci­ety had blocked en­try of me­dia-per­sons when TOI tried to ap­proach them.
